1. Installing Android game to your phone/tablet
1.Go to the game page and tap Download, then select the suitable apk file and tap OK in the pop-up window to download the file.
2.You should get a notification that you successfully downloaded the file.
If there’s no notification, you can always find the file you’ve downloaded in your Download folder on your device
Tap the game file.
If it’s your first time installing Android game you can get a pop-up that blocks installations from unknown sources. Tofix it and allow your device to install the game tap Settings>Security>Unknown sources (check it if there’s no mark) >ОK
Then you go back to installing the game.
2. Installing Android games with cache to your phone/tablet
1.Install ES File Explorer to your device. Tap Install and after you finish downloading the files it’ll automatically be installed to your device. To open the app tap Open.
2.Enable Trust unknown sources option
Menu > Settings > Security >Unknown sources (check it if there’s no mark)
Note: Different devices may have different paths to Trust unknown sources and USB debugging options and it may differ from the path we show here.
For example we took 4×4 jam HD.
4.The apk file is in Download folder that’s in your root directory on your device.
Open the folder on your phone/tablet with ES File Explorer.
On your device it should look like this:
5.Tapthe *.apkfile and select Install.
6.After the installation is complete tap Open and if the game needs cache let it download it from game server.
After the cache is downloaded the game will automatically open
7.If you can’t download cache automatically you need to download it from the game page manually.
Tap Download under the game description and choose Android 4.0 and higher file from a list of available cache files
Your system will ask you to select an app to open the link. Choose ES Exploler in the pop-up window
Note: If you don’t hit the pop-up telling you to select the app and you’re downloading cache automatically wait for the download to finish and then go to Downloads folder and open 2_4х4_jam.zip file you downloaded using ES Exploler
InES Exploler tap the downloaded 2_4х4_jam.zip file and select Open Folder
Inside the archive you’ll find a folder with game cache – com.invictus.jamhd you need to select it by holding it, use Extract button at the bottom menu of ES Exploler to decompress the file to the path indicated on the game page (in this case it’s sdcard/Android/obb/)
Note:Cache path is indicated in its description. If it’s not there, look at the note at the bottom of this instruction
Wait for the app to decompress the file. Some games with big cache can take a long time to do this.
After you extract files close the tab with the zip file in ES Explorer taping the blue x at the top right
8. We recommend deleting installation files from your Download folder after that, so your device remains clutter-free
Holding your finger on the file will select it and then you can delete it by selecting Delete in the menu at the bottom of the screen.
Note: What’s cache?
Cache is just a folder with files you need to run a game or an app.
Virtually all games with cache on mob.org have their cache path on the game page showing you where you need to copy the files. Game cache is in a zip file and you need to copy not the zip file itself, but its contents to the indicated folder (read about how to do that in the instruction above)
If there’s no cache path on the page you can create in automatically:
1.Download the game (*.apk file)
3.After the installation run the game and allow it to start downloading cache, but cancel it in 10-15 seconds. The game created the folder and now you know where to place the cache.
Cache paths for games by popular developers:
Gameloft games – sdcard/gameloft/games/(game name). If the game is from market the path will be different – sdcard/Android/data/(game name)
Electronic Arts (EA) games – sdcard/Android/data/(game name*)
Glu games – sdcard/glu/(game name*)
Games by other developers – sdcard/data/data/(game name *) or sdcard/(game name *)
By (game name *) we mean extracted game cache!
